Lemons are one of the best and most versatile summer fruits. Seriously, just think of all of the things you can do with them and all of the recipes with lemon that exist. You can use them to make freshly-squeezed lemonade, sweet mixed drinks, and even a batch of delicious guacamole (and those are only a few possibilities!). Lemons just go so well with everything. But, my absolute favorite things to make with this citrus fruit, especially during the dog days of summer, are lemon dessert recipes. I just love how the lemons make everything naturally taste just sweet enough without going overboard. Plus, lemon dessert recipes are just so light in taste that they don’t weigh you down or keep you from fully enjoying the beautiful summer weather.
